Throughout March, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) will host a series of workshops that will feature our public humanities faculty fellows in person on the first floor of 325 Cooper Street. Scholars will discuss a range of topics from case studies, writing for the public, and personal archives, and will demonstrate ways to succeed in the Humanities.
Humanities Writing for the Public (Monday, March 27 @ 11:20 am)
Writing for public audiences is a completely different skill than writing for an academic audiences, such as scholarly journals, your professors, and Canvas discussion posts! In a time when rhetoric and communicating with the public is as important as ever, this workshop will give you an introduction to the skills needed to write for a public audience.
